Sodexo stays on at Birmingham Children’s Hospital

Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust has extended its partnership with Sodexo awarding a new five-year patient dining and retail services contract at its Children’s Hospital.

Sodexo will be building on its previous 10-year contract with Birmingham Children’s Hospital, with the addition of the Parkview Clinic, a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) inpatient facility.

The contract, valued at £11 million, will see Sodexo invest in the food, eating and retail facilities across the hospital and Parkview, with a new 120-seat staff and visitor restaurant, the first Crussh outlet outside of London and the refitted Conservatory Café, all collectively staffed by Sodexo’s 50-strong team.

The menus will see 95 per cent of the food served cooked fresh on site, with regular tasting sessions by children at the onsite school, to give feedback on menu design and to further educate the pupils on the importance and benefits of good nutrition.

Stuart Winters, CEO of Healthcare, Sodexo UK & Ireland, said: “Extending our 10-year partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital was a clear opportunity to review and overhaul patient dining and retail provision. Our new menus will offer improved and tailored choices with a clear focus on fresh food and locally sourced produce. These have been designed to ensure that we give the right nutrition to children and young people to help them heal and recover, and play a part in the Children’s Hospital staff continuing to deliver the best possible care.”
